"No one ot Shakes peare's plays Is more popular than 'The Merchant of Venice.' None la more misun derstood. The opinion Is almoat universal that the main action is the loan by Shy lock to Antonio and the consequences there of, i The opinion Is wholly mistaken. The error Is 'the result ot two causes: Ignor ance of dramatic1 construction and ' tha conventional, method. ,f .staging the pray;" The -opening paragraph of Mr. Fleming' tudy of "The Merchant of Venice" Indi cates the character of hla work. Tha au thor proceeds in an Interesting manner to analyze the famous play, both In It me chanical construction 'and in Ha aesthetic qualities. In like method Mr. Fleming makes a comprehensive study of four other plays, "Macbeth." "Julius Caesar," "Othello" and "The Twelfth Night." The method followed is extremely help ful to everyone who reads Shakespeare. To the playgoer and atudent th book is of value in giving clear Insight to play writing In general and to an appreciation of Shakespeare'a masterpieces in particu lar. Jn this respect Mr. Fleming has un dertaken a phase In tha study of Shakea- pea re that has not heretofore received It. proper attention by writer and editors. The author insists that tha plot is the Important thing, and show how a well constructed plot ,' Is built by aa definite law as an arch ot masonry. Numberless are the commentatora at the master, but few have approached the analysis of the plays with better effect or with better result than Mr. Fleming. Two chapter of tha book, by way of In troduction, ar devoted to explain how the drama 1 a work of art founded on na ture and nature'a laws. Tha art of com position, the evolutloa ot a drama.

These may be classified iqto Ave general divisions: Introduction, where most of tha main characters are introduced; growth, where tha real action of the play begins; climax, where all the complicating and revolving forces of tha play meet in a point, for the climax la the crest ot the dramatic arch up to which the action ha moved, from which point ithat action changing Ita direction moves , toward tha conclusion of th play; the fall prepares for the end; tha catastrophe Is tba final event In a drama. All or Shakespeare' playa are bullded on this scaffolding, and for that reason hla playa are models of dramatic construction. The - playgoer or reader educated to understand these prin ciples finds In Shakespeare delight and Inspiration. Mr. Fleming, having clearly explained to the reader the rulea ot dramatic construc tion, resolves each of the Ave playa Into Ita constituent parts and leads -tba reader step by step through -each of tha divisions. The various and numerous parts 'of which ach play is composed ar reduced to order the significance of each la given its proper value. Out-ot the variety ot char acter, ot paaslon, ot action, of incident and scens, there Is developed unity. The sep arate details ot the play ar seen to bs eorelated, each having ita proper place and accent in the development of the plot. The connection and harmony of all the parta become apparent. The full force and value of the play Is mad evident, and each play becomes aesthetically intelligible aa a beautiful work of art.
